Saturated red-ruby. Discreet, pure aromas of currant, minerals, dried flowers and truffle; shows more lift and primary character than La Serra. Sweet, smoky and smooth but still a bit sullen in the middle palate. But this has excellent texture and really expands on the back end. Tannins are sweet and smooth.

Dense, masculine, and muscular, the 1998 Barolo Brunate displays abundant quantities of blackberry and cherry liqueur aromas intertwined with vanilla, licorice, tobacco, and rose petals. The new oak is brilliantly absorbed by this medium to full-bodied, sweet, expansively-flavored Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2016.
